The team includes Sameer Madan, Hermes Pique, Billy Ng, Muhammed Ibrahim and they are working for different platforms such as Android, iOS and Web to bring the feature. Bob Baldwin also worked to add features which now allow users to add stickers and pictures in comment and these are used now widely in Facebook. The addition of videos in comment section made it more interesting that allow access to multimedia features such as link, emojis, photos, sticker and now videos.
